Dear Ms. McCabe:

I am a Peace Corps volunteer serving in Kingston, Jamaica.  My site is 
a large inner-city squatter community called Drewsland, which has been 
long underserved by all governement agencies, and suffers all of the 
usual social and infrastructural consequences.  My host agency, a 
community based organization, is studying the possibility of starting a 
community garden for senior citizens.  Many of these are living alone, 
and are not well-supported by their children.  We hope that gardening 
will get them outside and active, while providing a small source of 
income and food.  We have already obtained permission to use a small 
piece of land (about 45' by 220'), and soon will begin seeking 

None of us have any experience in community gardening.  I have found a 
few useful resources on the internet, but I think access to your 
training resources would be a much greater help.  However, our 
organization is entirely without funding at this time.  Our 
organization is staffed solely by unpaid volunteers, with very low 
personal incomes.  I wonder if you would consider providing membership -
or just access to educational materials - as a form of sponsorship.  We

us to some useful resources which might be available for free.  The 
embassy has a library service which should be able to get things in for 

You can contact me at this email address (ian@awenet.com), or by mail
